that the holder justice department threw out, yeah. >> you tried to run with the shirley sherrod. >> this was not a smart -- nice try but this was all the far left fanning the flames of these stories trying to accuse racism where it didn't exist. >> look, the far left looks at the same polls that the republicans do, that whenever the president is talking about race, it fans the flames of white racial resentment and his numbers go down. you learned that last summer when you saw him step out henry lewis gates issue. that's how they learned how to play the racial resentment card. that's what's been going on. numbers of people think the president is a muslim have been going up. simply stick to say all white people are opposing him because of race. >> chris, go ahead. >> this is ridiculous. okay, so then i guess if i follow that logic then all of the black people who don't support bush, they are racist? i mean, that makes no sense. >> no. >> hold on, hold on. >> as it relates to. so things that you said relative to shirley sherrod. shirley sherrod was fired by the department of agric

. >> no. >> hold on, hold on. >> as it relates to. so things that you said relative to shirley sherrod. shirley sherrod was fired by the department of agriculture. she was not fired by anyone but them. the naacp picked a fight with the tea party that it found that it couldn't win. so, by bringing all of these things that you are bringing in here, it makes no sense. the argument makes no sense. and as it relates to henry lewis gates, please. >> mark, let me ask you a broader question here. it seems that the old webry of playing the race card isn't working anymore. americans elected a black president. we have moved on. and so on as a nation in terms of civil rights. and it seems that there is so much desperation. that old weaponry of the race card is no longer working. and that's why you are getting these irrational and irresponsible uses of the race card where it doesn't exist and frankly it dilutes real racism where it does exist. >> i mean, okay, that would be a great al i didn't if there was a race card that ever worked. if there was some race trump card. talking about race is always

gingrich has a history of finding racist on the part of liberals. gone arch shirley sherrod who was working for the agricultural department. calling her a black racist. he referred to sotomayor who was named to the supreme court and confirmed as a woman -- a latino woman racist. he seems to like to point that way. is this to give cover to something on his side? what's he up to here? why is he also saying racist, racist, racist, about minorities? >> well it's something that he didn't do quite as much ofwhen he had position of power. he's been in that crou for a while now. he did it when he was trying to get republicans back into power. he sees his job as getting on tv, getting arguments on to tv and into the discourse which he's doing here. it really isn't befitting the statesman, the speaker of the house. this almost reminds me of rand paul talking about civil rights act, as the kind of theory. there's things, it's perfectly fine -- well maybe not perfectly fine. these are things that are okay to dish about in an intellectual level but these are, you know, weird allegations to make about th
and about shirley sherrod and, you know, in a way that suggests this whole sort of bizarre clash of civilizations idea, the notion that what he would consider as us, the whole kind of anglo-american, judeo-christian white enterprise is being besieged by other civilizations "countdown with keith olbermann" number one among them being islam. you know, and i hope he doesn't but one wonders if that idea actually has some purchase inside the unkempt thing that is the head of newt gingrich. >> given that we were colonies and we rebelled, we were anti-colonialists, when did anti-colonialism become anti-american? i thought we've almost always worked with the colonies who sought to get out from under the thumb of the european colonists. >> yeah, because we didn't like being colonies. we didn't like colonialism. but somehow, again, inside his head, that narrative has been twisted and one imagines that he fancies himself as a retired british colonel in 1963 sitting around in his armchair puffing his pipe saying who lost kenya, that sort of thing. >> why do they call roddesia -- what is his
controversy in new york, you have the phony accusations against shirley sherrod. are the media playing an inflammatory role? >> the media's undoubtedly playing an inflammatory role to the extent that at this point cable tv is only about conflict and the web is there to amplify it. but the fact is it is what it is. the media isn't going to change. that aspect of life isn't going to change. so it actually behooves people who are actually facing controversial things to be very, very careful when they're going in that they're not going to start pressing all these buttons. >> why are you so willing to accept it as a fact of life? it seems to me, especially if race is involved, if religion is involved, if some fringe character like this pastor terry jones is involved, we not only obsess on this story, we practically create the story. and you're saying that i should just accept that because that's the way it is. >> well, i don't think it's attractive to accept it, but i think we live in a world where there's massive aspects of the media which can't in any sense be controlled. i'm talking abou
